The TV chef is on Instagram but he has not given anything away about why he is absent from the show.
It is not unusual for the main presenter to take time off and another chef to step in temporarily.
Matt could be taking a temporary break to spend time with family or deal with other commitments.
Fans will be pleased to hear Matt is only taking a week off, as he will be back on the programme the following weekend, on October 30.
Upon his return, he will be joined by chefs Marcus Wareing and Rachel Allen, and special guest Al Murray.
